Create an extremely dense collage of both meaningful and filler items. Load up the scanner bed with these objects while keeping compositional and aesthetic goals in mind. Go overboard. Take your time. Fill your space from edge to edge. The building of this scene is the real project here—the scanning is just the final quick step. The collage could be theme-based or just visual nonsense. Up to you.
- All right, let's get right down to business here,…and by business, I mean let's have some fun…creating a theme-based 3D collage with our scanner.…So the theme that I'm gonna go with is happy birthday.…That way, when I'm done, I can print the image…that I come up with for last-minute birthday cards,…and yeah, I am thinking ahead here.…Now along with the Scrabble letters…that I've gathered for my theme, I've also rounded up…some other relevant items.…I got birthday candles, some party favors,…some bits of ribbon, and so on.…
I mean, after all, a good collage is all about collecting…the right building material up front.…And before I do any more work on this collage,…I'm gonna take a quick overview scan just to check out…what I've got going, and that looks pretty cool.…I'm good so far.…All right, now the theme of your collage…when you do this project, it can be anything you like.…It could be a theme based on a special event, like mine is,…or it could be a theme based on a hobby or an interest,…or maybe it could be connected to an abstract idea…
